I think it's so great that you and QueenofDIY came up with basically exactly the same bag independently. I think it shows how much we really need more green living options in our lives! Your fabric choices are great!

You should definitely hop over to the link posted before this and see all the other green shopping bag creations! We've been having a grand time over there making bags for about a year now...

I saw them yesterday evening I was going through recent posts and saw a cute b/w one and clicked in. The girl had said something about folding so I was going to help and saw the other link for folding, which was funny to me as even that was different.  the more of us that go green the better though

I am glad to see I was not the only one with a bit of trouble with the pocket.  I like folding it within it's self.  Thank you for tutorial.

Well done on the bags!  I think that you'll find that they're really handy.  When I changed over permanently to cloth bags, it took me 10 months to work my way through all the plastic bags I'd accumulated.(I'd developed an allergy to the plastic bags. They began to give me welts 1/4" high. It was awful.) At the time, I wish I'd had either your or Queenofdiy's tutorial to make a bunch of these. Since I found the tute, I've made 6 or 7. The bagger's don't particularly like them but they're getting better at tolerating them since many places have started selling black bags (recycled plastic bags: I can't carry them either) But, they still aren't thrilled about the cloth option. However, you've done very well on your bags. Pat yourself firmly on the back. Wink Something I'd made was a smallish "Jordy Bag" to carry all my cloth bags in. It makes carrying them much easier and I didn't forget them quite so often.
